This Big Fit Reminds Us That Timothée Chalamet Is French for “Timothée Chalamet”
A new Timothée Chalamet film means a months-long journey of outrageous fits, with each premiere or press event bringing us another take on radical suiting, from Haider Ackerman in Venice to Vuitton sequins in London. (Razzle dazzle!)
Chalamet was in Paris this week for the premiere of Little Women, or as it’s called in France, Les Filles du Docteur March. For the occasion, he wore a wild magenta suit made by the immaculate hands of Stella McCartney, and carried in his fingers a keychain of the Eiffel Tower.
A modest proposal for a men’s answer to the tiny bag craze, which began with French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus? A humble nod to the gracious spirit of the City of Lights? It’s all in the name of fashion diplomacy. Timothée Chalamet – whose name is, incredibly, French for “Timothée Chalamet” – has nailed le grand ensemble du jour.
